MONTPELIER — Gov. Phil Scott on Thursday revealed his pick to be the next justice on Vermont’s top court.
Scott named Judge Karen Russell Carroll to fill the seat on the state Supreme Court that will be vacated by Justice John Dooley at the end of this month. Carroll will be appointed April 1.
Carroll has had a lengthy career in Vermont, as both a prosecutor and on the bench — including presiding over an unusual case in which a sharply divided state Supreme Court later overturned the conviction because of her conduct.
